A hatter obsessed by the history of headwear 25-year-old East Ender Nasir Mazhar is one of the most talked about fashion talents of the moment.
After starting out training with Vidal Sassoon he soon became frustrated with limitations of hair and started to incorporate fabric in the styles he created, transforming 'dos to headwear.
In 2007 he started working as a theatrical hatter with Mark Wheeler, whom he first met on Kylie Minogue's first Showgirl tour. Since then he's collaborated with the Rambert Dance Company, the Royal Opera House, Globe Theatre, National Theatre and the Barbican.
Last season Nazir presented off-schedule at Hoxton Square Bar And Kitchen. This is first appearance on the main London Fashion Week schedule.
